My favourite Composer – Thomas Bergersen

Standard

Thomas Bergersen is part of my favourite Group Two Steps from Hell. He composes lots of other amazing music apart from the epics for Two Steps from Hell.

In March 2020, Thomas Bergerson announced the seven part album series Humanity. Humanity is intended to be a seven part album series exploring all aspects of human emotion.

On 1 July 2020, Humanity Chapter I was released. The first chapter’s focus is on freedom, strength and unity, bringing many musical cultures together in a colorful and expressive way.

On 11 November 2020, Humanity Chapter II was added. Chapter II is about our families, children, dreams and desires, our legacy, our hardship, heroism, fate and purpose.

On 6 May 2021 Humanity – Chapter III was released. With Chapter III, Thomas wanted to take a soft approach to exploring the deepest, purest and perhaps the most fulfilling feelings we can experience as humans on this planet.

Love


He describes in this emotional chapter emotions of love during life as you can see from the titles: Sparks, Red, First Kiss, Butterflies, You are my home, Magic, Born to dream, Little star, Growing old together, Until the lights go out, It was a life worth living, Love suite, You, Sunshower.


The album, I dare say my favourite Humanity album, is amazing, there are no words to describe it really.

Every title is really bringing the emotions out with the orchestra.

My all time favourite from this album is Until the lights go out with piano and guitar.

This track is so peaceful, so calming; I want to hear it when I am at the end of my life, ready to go to the maker and have it played at my funeral.

I am practising it on the guitar, it is so beautiful.

In the meanwhile Chapter IV is out too; If you like it – look out for it.

Thomas has a facebook page here where you can stream his music.

  1. This is soooo beautiful! I have not heard of Thomas Bergerson. I am very glad you made this post. I plan to explore more of his music. Music is a joy in life!

    • My joy of life also Betty. Thomas and Two STeps from Hell are amazing. To me it is the next best thing to Beethoven. Thomas goes under classical music genre. Enjoy some others, I can recommennd the ‘Love suite’ form that album too!

  2. I will take time tolisten to the whole thing later.. the way you describe it reminds me of the way I feel when I hear Dvorak’s Ninth.

    • Mary, it does come under classical genre. For me Thomas is in the league of Beethoven etc. I always like a great and full orchestra. Check out the Love suite form the same album oh and so many more….. 🙂 ♥

Love to hear from you......
